4.7 V8 — 4WD SUV with a V8. Nice car, except the parts are expensive. Example: the electric door mirror was broken and I wanted to buy a new one. 400 euros!! Luckily there is internet and I am able to buy the part from the US at a more reasonable price. And the fuel consumption. A big car with a V8, full time 4WD and automatic gearbox = oil companies love you and your wallet.

Pros: Roomy, 4WD

Cons: fuel consumption, expensive parts (in Europe)

Seemed Ok At The Time — This was my second lease vehicle and it was a complete mess. The electrical system started failing early in the lease, leading the locks and windows to not work when the car get wet. Sometimes the tail lights wouldn't work, then a few hours later they would. It got OK mileage but I drove it like I stole it so it wasn't great. 4WD system worked fantastically until the drive train started mucking up. After that it was back to the dealer once a month to get various recalls fixed until I turned it in.

Pros: World class 4WD system, nice leather interior, lots of power

Cons: Unreliable electrics, transmission problems, smallish interior, plastic everywhere

Will You Ever Really Drive The Rubicon Trail? —

I decided to purchase a 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Resplendent in Gold, it was a well-optioned Limited with a 4.7-liter V8 and Quadratrac full-time 4-wheel drive. It also had leather interior, heated seats and the premium Infinity sound system. I needed 4-wheel drive because I recently moved to snow country and my Accord was fairly useless. I quickly fell in love with this Jeep. It was handsome and rugged and still managed to provide a fairly smooth ride considering if had solid axles front and rear. It has plenty of power from the hearty V8 and was never at a loss for lugging oversized cargo or hauling trailers. Yet the shine soon wore off. After years of Honda’s, Audi’s and VW’s, I was sad to see how much effort went into the superficial aspects of this Jeep. From a distance of about 10 feet, it looked great. As you came closer you noticed orange peel on the painted surfaces. Fit and finish are not this Jeeps strong points. Panel gaps were large and overall attention to detail was poor. For such an expensive car there was a large amount of hard plastic surfaces and the transition between the leather and vinyl surfaces was too noticeable. And for such a relatively large vehicle, 4 adults had a hard time getting comfortable on anything longer than a trip around town. On anything other than smooth road surfaces the Jeep squeaked and rattled and during the time I owned this Grand Cherokee no mechanic was able to track the loud moaning sound that came from the rear axle-area. Mind you, they all heard it but no one seemed to know how to make it go away! The brakes, a common complaint with Grand Cherokee owners, always seemed slow to react to the mushy pedal feel and, even after several inspections and adjustments. They never inspired confidence. The steering was sloppy and required constant correction on the freeway – I suppose you can’t expect BMW steering when you have a solid front axle but some sense of self correction would have been appreciated. Let’s not even discuss gas mileage, as it would be unfair to expect any heavy V8-powered 4-wheel drive vehicle to shine is this category. However I was able to manage a consistent 20-mpg on the highway and this big brute runs or regular unleaded fuel. I suppose I expected too much from my Jeep. I wanted value for the money and expected that its good looks were more than skin deep. What I did get was an ability to get to and fro in snow and other bad weather – already an amazing accomplishment. And maybe that’s what I needed to learn about the Jeep. I was judging it by standards that didn’t apply. It wasn’t a sports car or even a luxury car. It’s a truck…my first and (so far) only truck and I was unprepared to accept that trucks, while swathed in leather and packing a 6-disk CD changer, are still designed to take you places no car can go. Keeping this criteria in mind, my Jeep rocked! But my need to explore the Rubicon never outweighed my need for things that cars were better designed to do. I moved away from snow and began to see how unsuited I was for Jeep ownership. I don’t understand why so many folks are at ease driving such big boxes in the city. At any rate, my time with the golden Grand Cherokee was short lived. Shortly after I moved to town it was stolen. Even though I had a love/hate relationship with the Jeep, I was sad to see it go. Every time I see a 99 Gold Grand Cherokee Limited, I smile.
